From the stylists, Kirbi and Tina: When we first met with photographer Chelsea Davis, we desired to capture a style that was not only beautiful, but was personal and adaptable. We decided to infuse a bit of rustic charm meets the beauty and timelessness of black & white. All the while, evoking some nostalgia through the use of vintage inspired props and wardrobe. Chelsea captured every little detail with talent and grace and effortlessly captured each of the beautiful elements we styled. Her photography tells a true story in this perfect evening sunlight of a charming, romantic outdoor soiree met with the coziness of a rustic, vintage celebration.

Lori Alexander, owner of 7 Closets Vintage, blew us out of the water with the addition of a breathtaking collection of vintage occasion and wedding gowns. With even more romance and lace reflected through the dress selections, the loveliness was only amplified. The addition of the bride’s black sash and satin bowed heels gives the perfect touch of black to the divine ivory gown. The groom sports a perfectly placed silver?gray and black bow tie with a classic black tux.

Sara with Lulubean Designs took our inspiration for black and white vintage and created a wonderfully matched paper suite complete with silhouettes, the whimsical use of timeless fonts, the texture of kraft, and a Save the Date adorned with vintage book pages. Every little detail from the styled event coordinates perfectly with her paper designs.

We couldn’t have asked for more from the dessert goddesses at two bakeries, Cinderella Stories and Frosted Bakery, for their edible perfections. Drizzled in white chocolate, sprinkled with romance, offering punches of silver and golden hues, and the amazing silhouette cookies (Cinderella Stories), the petite sweets were scrumptiously executed. We adorned Cinderella Stories’ large tiered cake with coordinating black lace and flower. We used vintage books, linens, cake stands, and dome platters to arrange Frosted’s elegant cupcakes to create a table that truly says Love Is Sweet. Behind the vintage inspired dessert tables, we fashioned whimsical frames hung with black satin ribbon in the trees and adorned black shutters with a lace bow for a small backdrop.

The floral design by Lisa Cushing of Petals By Design was stunning and simple through the use of single cut stems and arrangements that combined vintage book pages and jute twine with lovely white hydrangeas, baby’s breath, roses, and ranunculus. With timeless white milk glass and mason jar props from A Style Collective, the floral was a subtle display of rustic charm. We also crafted do? it?yourself book page flowers to add to the bouquet and boutonnière to play up the use of these elements in the paper goods as well as the vintage books in the tablescape.

From the bride, Megan: Even before we got engaged on October 2, 2010, I knew we would plan a fall wedding. The timing worked out perfectly, and once I had a ring on my finger, my mom and I wasted no time in getting things going! Our first booking was with Gallery 1028, a rustic yet modern loft space in an industrial area of Chicago. With the rough wood floors and white walls, we knew this would be the perfect backdrop for our organic and eclectic wedding. A close second was choosing our photographer-Clary Pfeiffer of Clary Photo. We met her for the first time when she was in Chicago to shoot another wedding, and sitting in the lobby of the Palmer House, we knew it had to be her! Her calm, sweet demeanor and truly unparalleled artistic eye made her the obvious, and perfect, choice to capture our day. Around the same time we snatched up Clary, we booked with I Do Films, the most amazing wedding filmmakers. After meeting with Lori, and then our filmmaker, Louis, I am positive that they made our wedding day look as good as it felt!

As things started falling into place, I could start to think about details-and the dress! We chose my Christos Femme lace gown after trying on only a few other dresses. The look on my dad’s face said it all… and the trunk show pricing helped to make it a reality! Because I am a graphic designer and have a small stationery company, Ruby the Fox Design, we knew paper goods would be at the forefront of the day. We commissioned an illustration from the amazingly talented Shanna Murray and calligraphy from Angelique ink. I kept the whole suite soft, organic and simple. The flowers were from the unbelievably talented Kelly Marie Uss of Fleur. When the bouquets were delivered to the hotel in the morning, seeing them was the first time I cried all day! They absolutely blew me away, the colors and textures were spot on. It was like my vision was becoming a reality and Kelly really made it happen. The colors were even better than I could have imagined!
